Workshop on “Information, Black Holes and Quantum Theory: Theoretical physics at the crossroads”

A workshop featuring lectures on various topics necessary to understand the subject ranging from, black holes in general relativity, quantum field theory in curved spacetime, quantum information theory, Hawking radiation, and holography. Topics discussed:

  • Holography
  • Information Loss in Black Holes
  • Strings
  • Entanglement Entropy and Holography

Black hole physics, in the quantum regime, has many paradoxes in-store whose resolution is of fundamental importance for theoretical advances of quantum gravity and quantum field theory and is expected to shed new light on quantum information theory. This workshop aimed to provide a thorough, yet pedagogical, introduction to the various physics ideas involved in understanding the problems related to quantum black hole physics, culminating at the hints of the current state of the art of the ongoing research in the field.

Venue: Abdus Salam School of Mathematical Sciences, Lahore, Pakistan
Date: March 26 – 30, 2018
